Donna Karan: Zen master
Thu Feb 19 2009
Donna Karan wasn't all about bright lights and bodysuits during Fashion Week. She pulled together a crowd at her Greenwich Street Urban Zen store Wednesday to discuss the most-recent initiatives of her Urban Zen Foundation. Among the latest beneficiaries: Students in New York's public school system, whom Karan would like to introduce to more holistic, spiritual ways of thinking, in conjunction with the SFK (Spirituality For Kids) organization. She's also hoping Bent on Learning, a program that brings yoga into schools, can be introduced to help kids become more centered, loving little beings. Parents interested in either of these efforts can stop by Urban Zen at 705 Greenwich Street this coming week, where SFK will hold an open house on Sunday, March 1 from 1 to 5pm. Bent on Learning will host an event next door, at 711 Greenwich Street, Wednesday February 25th at 7pm.
